Allegory of Fortune

Allegory of Fortune. Lippi, Lorenzo 1606-1665. The depiction of a human figure personifying an abstract concept such as youth or beauty is called an allegory. The young woman in this painting is an allegory of fortune and the monkey, who appears to be selecting playing cards, symbolises chance. The association of fortune with man?s ability to shape his destiny by swift, decisive action was a popular concept during the Renaissance. It derived from the classical idea of fortune being an unpredictable force which must be seized to ensure success. Born in Florence, Lippi was a pupil of Matteo Rosselli from whom he learnt the fine, searching drawing skills of the Florentine workshop tradition. During the 1630s Lippi drew increasingly from nature, a skill described by his biographer Balducci as ?his pure imitation of reality?. Lippi also developed a restrained, classical style that abandoned the richly patterned fabrics and elaborate jewellery favoured by other Seventeenth century Florentine painters. Date:

A 'help yourself' grocery - checkout

Photograph taken from a United States supermarket in 1948, 'where Britain's queues and rations are unknown', showing a woman being served at the checkout. The concept of the supermarket where all manner of goods could be bought in one place, without the assistance of a shop keeper, and then paid for at a checkout, was first introduced in America where rationing did not feature following World War II. This picture was one of a series taken in an A&P supermarket; America's largest chain begun in 1937 and with 1670 supermarkets by 1948.
